#### Basic Structures of Reality

Oxford University Press 2011; US$ 54.99 US$ 47.29In Basic Structures of Reality , Colin McGinn deals with questions of metaphysics, epistemology, and philosophy of mind from the vantage point of physics. more...

#### Are We There Yet? The Search for a Theory of Everything

Bentham Science Publishers 2011; US$ 21.00We live in exciting times. The frontiers of physics have been pushed to unprecedented horizons. The Holy Grail of fundamental physics research today is to find and describe a theory that explains, at least in principle, all physical phenomena, which in turns explains chemistry, biology and other material sciences. This, however, is not without controversy.... more...

#### Field, Force, Energy and Momentum in Classical Electrodynamics

Bentham Science Publishers 2011; US$ 89.00For the past 100 years physicists have debated the nature of the momentum of light inside material media. Hermann Minkowski, for example, asserts that within a transparent dielectric the momentum of a photon is the photon’s vacuum momentum multiplied by the refractive index of the dielectric. An opposing theory postulated by Max Abraham, contends... more...

#### Perfectly Matched Layer (PML) for Computational Electromagnetics

Morgan & Claypool Publishers 2007; US$ 40.00This lecture presents the perfectly matched layer (PML) absorbing boundary condition (ABC) used to simulate free space when solving the Maxwell equations with such finite methods as the finite difference time domain (FDTD) method or the finite element method. The frequency domain and the time domain equations are derived for the different forms of... more...

#### Physical Systems

Springer Netherlands 2012; US$ 134.77This book offers a new philosophical interpretation of classical mechanics and the Special Theory of Relativity, in which motions of parts and wholes of physical systems are taken to be fundamental, prior to spacetime, material properties and laws of motion. more...

#### Integral Equation Methods for Electromagnetic and Elastic Waves

Morgan & Claypool Publishers 2008; US$ 55.00Integral Equation Methods for Electromagnetic and Elastic Waves is an outgrowth of several years of work. There have been no recent books on integral equation methods. There are books written on integral equations, but either they have been around for a while, or they were written by mathematicians. Much of the knowledge in integral equation methods... more...

#### Electromagnetic Scattering using the Iterative Multi-Region Technique

Morgan & Claypool Publishers 2007; US$ 40.00In this work, an iterative approach using the finite difference frequency domain method is presented to solve the problem of scattering from large-scale electromagnetic structures. The idea of the proposed iterative approach is to divide one computational domain into smaller subregions and solve each subregion separately. Then the subregion solutions... more...

#### Wide-Band Slow-Wave Systems

CRC Press 2012; US$ 221.95The field of electromagnetics has seen considerable advances in recent years, based on the wide applications of numerical methods for investigating electromagnetic fields, microwaves, and other devices. Wide-Band Slow-Wave Systems: Simulation and Applications presents new technical solutions and research results for the analysis, synthesis, and... more...

#### Computer Simulation in Physics and Engineering

De Gruyter 2013; US$ 168.43This work is a needed reference for widely used techniques and methods of computer simulation in physics and other disciplines, such as materials science. The work conveys both: the theoretical foundations of computer simulation as well as applications and "tricks of the trade", that often are scattered across various papers. Thus it will... more...

#### Strong and Superstrong Pulsed Magnetic Fields Generation

De Gruyter 2014; US$ 145.96Strong pulsed magnetic fields are important for several fields in physics and engineering, such as power generation and accelerator facilities. Basic aspects of the generation of strong and superstrong pulsed magnetic fields technique are given, including the physics and hydrodynamics of the conductors interacting with the field as well... more...
